AbstractIn the present paper an ‘in-house’ genetic algorithm is described and applied to an optimization problem of improving the aerodynamic performances of an airfoil through upper surface morphing. The results of the optimization of the flow behavior for the airfoil morphing upper-surface problem are validated with experimental transition results obtained with Infra-red Thermography for the CRIAQ MDO 505 wing tip demonstrator, proving that the 2D numerical optimization using the ‘in-house’ genetic algorithm is an important tool in improving various aspects of a wing’s performances
